2016 Subaru Forester

2016 SUBARU FORESTER: A major attraction in the Subaru exhibit at the Chicago Auto Show is the 2016 Subaru Forester crossover. Entering its fourth generation, the Forester is available in Forester Base, Premium, Limited and top-tier Touring versions. Buyers have a choice of a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine or new 250-hp 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged Boxer. Depending on power plant and trim level, the engines are matched to either a new six-speed manual gearbox or a high-torque continuously variable transmission (CVT) that features six-speed and eight-speed manual shift modes with steering wheel paddle switches. As with all previous Forester, the 2016 models come standard with Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive system, recognized for dependability, performance, and versatility. The base model 2.5i gets rear vision camera and color multi-function display as standard equipment. Previously unavailable, the 2.5i Premium manual transmission model is now equipped with a moonroof standard. The 2.5i Touring models receive standard high luster 18-inch alloy wheels. All Touring models feature Keyless Access & Start, HID lights, and chrome rocker trim. Navigation is now optional on the Touring levels. The expanded five-passenger interior contains 60/40 split rear seatbacks that when lowered provide a maximum of 74.7 cubic feet cargo room. The '16 Forester maintains a comfortably easy and low step-in, enhanced this year by wider-opening rear doors and by side sills that are two inches lower than before. All but the base 2.5i model come with a standard rear vision camera and color multi-function display. New available features include a power rear liftgate with automatic close, keyless access and start and the EyeSight driver assists set-up that uses a stereo camera developed by Subaru, rather than radar and integrates adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and vehicle lane departure warning systems.
